World Appreciation Day

“World Appreciation Day 2.0: Using International Skills in Careers” is a half-day mini-conference that will be held on the UW-Madison campus. This year’s event is for high school students.

On Thursday, November 15, 2018, in honor of International Education Week, IRIS is pleased to offer World Appreciation Day 2.0: Using International Skills in Careers.  

The event will be held at Union South, from 8:15-12:15 and will feature engaging presentations by Steve Wallace, Founder and President of Milwaukee’s Omanhene Cocoa Bean Company and Jacob Kushner, a UW-Madison alum who works as a freelance international journalist.  There will also be a foreign languages  “speed-dating” session, an opportunity to speak with representatives of various globally-focused UW-Madison offices, among other presentations.

Each school may bring up to 35 students.  There will be no charge for schools to participate and some financial assistance to help defray the costs of transportation to/from Madison (for schools outside of Dane County) may be  available.

Pre-registration for “World Appreciation Day 2.0” is required.  Please register HERE.
